TUNE Mouth Breather - After All We’ve Been Through
Mouth Breather is the moniker of 23 yr-old Toronto based eclectic/alt-pop artist Owen Hooper. He's on the internet all the time and totally up to date with culture i.e. which Soundcloud rapper just got a face tattoo. He also suffers from a sense of alienation and anxiety about what life is like, given how much of the world is taking place online. As a result, his songs are all believable and they tell stories, although they're not at all what you would expect from regular "pop" music. There's something sort of "uncanny valley" about his music, because Mouth Breather isn't really sure what is real and what is fabricated reality.
"23-year-old Owen Hooper is Mouth Breather, a smorgasbord of ideas and soundscapes that all culminate into dreamy, indie-pop anthems that one can easily lose themselves to. With 'After All We’ve Been Through,' the dreamy vibes are dialed to a 10 with mesmerizing effect, creating a space where the mind and body act as two, both enraptured by the dulcet vocals and hazy rhythms that are taking place...'After All We’ve Been Through' is already setting up what could be 2020’s first great album." - Atwood Magazine
